Winter pause

I know it is possible to take good pictures in Winter. Nevertheless my routine is somehow broken by the weather unpredictable changes. Most of the time it has been cloudy and pictures need sun and contrast. Sometimes it rains and it is also cloudy of course. When the sun shines the sky is completely clear, no clouds at all, like today. I like photos with some clouds, an empty sky is boring. But with such good weather yesterday and today I had to go out and take some pictures. Yesterday I choosed an Olympus Pen EE-2 and took color pictures, using a Fuji Superia 100 ISO exposed at 50 ISO. The film was developed in the 2-bath C-41 process of Dignan.

This Olympus Pen EE-2 is not that sharp, but is OK.

Today, I choosed another camera, a Konica Big Mini. I read somewhere that it has excellent lens. Using this time the rest of my Polypan F 50 ISO, exposed at 100 ISO and developed in a Caffenol developer with Vit. C and Phenidone, I took some pictures without clouds.

The empty sky doesn't look so naked because I cut it from the scene.

I like the photos made with the Konica Big Mini. It is incredible how good this P&S cameras can be. Next time I will be using a Pentax P&S, also very good and with zoom. The 3.rd Konica picture above was cutted to the center, This is similar to the so called digital zoom of the digital cameras.
